More about T-Mobile's Paramount+ promo

There are a couple of things that T-Mobile and Sprint customers may want to consider prior to signing up for the Paramount+ on T-Mobile promotion. First off, if you're a new Paramount+ user, you'll be given the option to signup for a free account. If you're an existing Paramount+ subscriber, you'll be given a coupon code that you'll need to enter.

Additionally, if you're an existing Premium plan customer who wants to take advantage of the deal, you'll have to cancel your existing account and then make a new account through the T-Mobile offer at your next billing cycle. It should also be noted that if you currently subscribe to the now-defunct "Limited Commercials plan" that was offered by CBS All Access prior to the Paramount+ launch, you won't be able to get it back if you do cancel.

T-Mobile and Sprint customers who take advantage of this promotion will also want to keep in mind that Paramount+ will automatically start charging you for the next month of service once your free year ends. Unfortunately, Paramount+ will not send a reminder before this happens, so you'll want to set a reminder to cancel your Paramount+ plan after 12 months.
